Check out CLSM or flowable fill. They are the same stuff.
Start with: http://www.nrmca.org/
That site will steer you to the following sites:
The only caution is the aspect of excavation. You have to look at the suppliers data that extends out to a year. The strength gain does not plateau like concrete. The specs referenced above is a pretty good guide.
Regards, Harold Sprague
Is there a schedule of sand/cement/water mix ratios that would give a range of strengths of slurry when it sets up? I need a mix that will be as good or better than 1500 psf bearing soil but can still be excavated if necessary.
Thanks in advance for any info on mix ratios that you have used with those limitations.
